  1. erwinnlim scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I find myself in repetition once again as once more this is a great release from the re-vamped Strictly Limited range from Carn Mor. A clean modern sherried affair here with the oak bringing sweetness and spice to the end product. Value (£57) : 8/10
    • Nose
      Some sweet red fruits with a degree of tartness to them. I'm thinking blueberries, cranberries, raspberries and apples. These are then drenched in a toffee syrup and a touch of burnt caramel. Rum raisins. Brown sugar treacle lingering at the back. Some maple syrup perhaps, with cinnamon and nutmeg. Light candied ginger spice. Then some drying tobacco leaves. Alcohol very well integrated here.
    • Taste
      A creamy mouthfeel. Again a burst of red fruits but sweeter now, that tartness is gone and is replaced by some dark chocolate and heavier notes from the oak. New leather and tea leaves. A sense of smoke or wood char. Black pepper heat appearing. More maple syrup, ginger and cinnamon. A perfect winter warmer.
    • Finish
      Medium to long in length. It's not as fruity now but still retains that maple syrup sweetness. Oak tannins come to the fore, bringing with them cracked black pepper and drying tobacco once again.

    For me, this malt is a nice change from the PX "liqueur malts" that are so common at the moment, which hardly offer any space for other flavors besides sweetness. Unfortunately, the finish falls off a bit compared to the rest and the recurring alcoholic impression doesn't necessarily have to be for my taste, but I still find the overall work quite tasty.
    • Nose
      A quite appealing fruity interplay of refreshingly sour hints of green apple and rather unripe pineapple and a not too sweet combination of raisins and dates, sometimes a very slight alcoholic touch comes through, but disturbs this invigorating first impression less than it complements it, sugared almonds are with you subtle hint of marzipan, the oak is already there, but almost a bit shy, little chocolate, over time more and more vanilla and even some coconut are added, minimal raspberries, a few citrus fruits also appear in the direction of green-spotted oranges, which is the distillate very clean and hardly malty, but has some juicy grassy moments up its sleeve, the smell is by no means an obtrusive aroma bomb, but overall quite inviting and appetizing
    • Taste
      First toffee and hazelnut brittle, with a refreshing acid kick, then the raspberries start the fruity experience together with the unripe oranges and crunchy apples, the chocolate-coated raisins arrive after a few moments along with the dates and some brown sugar, it gets noticeably sweeter, but it is Far from being a sticky obtrusive sugar paste, the clean burn occasionally flashes alcohol and contributes to a fairly lively and hints of peppery mouthfeel, slightly grassy with a subtle hint of chewed meadowsweet roots, long chews lure the smooth blend out Vanilla and very little coconut emerge, there is still hardly anything to notice from the oak, a bit of charcoal abrasion is there, but without bitterness, a subliminal hint of very light tobacco flavored with a hint of menthol
    • Finish
      Just so medium long and a bit inconspicuous ending, a brief alcohol moment after swallowing is replaced by dark milk chocolate with a few malt crispies, the grassy barley scurries by quickly, a little green tea, remains of the dates remain with a bit of Demerara and raisins, but at the same time there are still memories of the fresh apples and the pineapples with a touch of green, and a small cloud of vanilla wafts past again and again

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Pretty often, PX provides some sugar sweetness in a whisky, which is pretty often a bit too much for me as well. But here, things turn towards a different direction. No sugarlike sweetness, no, just a lot of red fruits with some honey sweetness to it.
    Over a very thick structure, yet smooth, hardly any alcohol noticeable. Really a very pleasant and balanced whisky for me.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Nice red fruity, berries, plums, raisins, cherries. Hardly any alcohol noticeable. Maple sirup.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Smooth, thick, oily. Warm red fruits, plums, forest fruits, some honey. Some hints of chocolate now. But still very smooth, yet full.
    • Finish
      89 89
      A bit of sparkle now, red fruits again, thick. Plums, berries. Pretty warming feeling, and pretty long finish. Later in even some cigar tobacco remaining for quite some time.

    This is a great value pour, sweet sherry, light spice, good oak, and balanced. Easy drinking!
    • Nose

      Vibrant sweet stewed fruits, caramel, ginger, menthol
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, but now spices and oak lend a hand to balance the sherry. Cherry losenges...
    • Finish
      89 89
      The oak takes center and makes it a touch bitter and drying, but it’s not a bad thing. Buttered popcorn, still sherry sweet and red stewed fruits but a side of the tongue linger that sticks around a good while

  15. Big_O scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Nose: Stone fruits and sweet toffee

    Palate: toffee, caramel, soft honey and red grapes

    Finish: Medium length with pear sweetness into traditional sherry

    A balanced malt, however, something is missing for me. It's too flat from start to finish.

    We are told this lesser-known distillery’s output often finds its way into [older] Haig and Dimple blends. Further reading: SW. I don’t recall having a sherry-matured Mannochmore before.

    N: Raisin-y for sure, but this is not a sherry-deliberate/heavy-handed/clumsy affair. From a super-clean quality cask, the sweetness here is alluring. Plenty of descriptors appear minute by minute, the nose becoming a shopping list dram thereafter.

    T: A touch richer and less sweet [more bitter-sweet] than some other contemporary malts can be, we’ve archetypal-esque PX-driven character all the way, and with plenty of layered complexity to boot.

    F: After some varied interplay, there’s some grape resinousness – so certainly plenty of previous contents talking – yet we are talking of some desirable PX in its own right.

    C: A rather special and [in someways] understated dessert dram, as well as super example of PX maturation. Most agreeable.

    restless, somehow immature, the sherry doesn't harmonize well. Something is wrong. The depth is missing. A small disappointment, even if you can of course drink the whisky well.
    • Nose
      very fruity, quite light, slightly acidic, the sherry in its fruity variant quickly comes out quite clearly, but very little wood and maturity.
    • Taste
      restless, fruity sherry, some root vegetables, also some alcohol, pepper
    • Finish
      Finish, tart, liquorice, very hot, the sherry looks a bit sticky on top, the finish is almost too stuck up towards the end, but has something of plum liqueur.

  21. 11insomnium scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very nice and compared to the Glenrothes 2007 with more floral fruitiness and less tart oak.
    • Nose
      Floral fragrant fruits, banana, full and sweet, strong oak with some resin and spices, dark dried fruits
    • Taste
      Sweet, strong and with a lot of volume, spicy oak, flowery fruitiness, honey, dark dried fruits
    • Finish
      Spices and oak with a very light soapy note, fruity, dark dried fruits

    I opened this bottle a few weeks ago. Hey it is a difficult one. Not even an every day whisky. I am sorry but I do not understand how some senior experts are comparing this whisky to an older whisky and rate it above 90 points..
    • Nose
      Syrupy- wine gums, glue, perfume, nothing for me to say I can get hooked on it.
    • Taste
      It does not coat the palate. There is some kind of an off note to it as well. Pepper, whisky mixed with wine and cough syrup. I tried to come back to it several times and I am struggling. Wineisky at it’s worst.
    • Finish
      Peppery and syrupy again. Short and very easy to forget.

  25. Cubey666 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Really nice, well balanced whisky. Nowadays often these sherry matured whiskies seem to do a match who can has the biggest bomb factor, but this one is really nice and layered. Nice red fruits, some sun dried grapes, and chocolates. Finish is nice long and sticky

    Fruity with a lot of sweetness and a medium-long finish.
    Wonderful complex whisky with a very good PLV

  27. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Forest fruits at first, blueberries, cranberries and a good amount of honey. Burned caramel, as in the top layer of creme brulee. Toffee. Stewed apples. Later also dark chocolate and a faint hint of tobacco.
    • Taste
      A good dark chocolate mixed with cranberries and blueberries. Maple syrup and also honey. A few spices, such as black pepper and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Mid-long with warm winter spices and cacao, making the finish slightly dry. Also, some fruits here, with mostly cranberries.

  28. LordBellamy scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I would do without adding water here.

    What a wonderful malt, I had it blindly in the glass and estimated it to be around 25 years. Soft, round, nice sherry note without killing the malt. In addition, the velvety, oily mouthfeel. Brilliant, plus the very damn good PLV.
    • Nose
      Beautiful sherry nose with a light charcoal smoke, raisins, dates, black currants, blackberry liqueur, some liquorice, subtle cloves, some orange oil, perfectly integrated alcohol
    • Taste
      Creamy, delicate mouthfeel, silky, old sherry, also very subtle smoke notes from the barrel, raisins with dark chocolate
    • Finish
      long, very long, dark chocolate, rum raisins, demara sugar, nice tannins with a little nutmeg and clove, without getting too dry at the back, liquorice roots come out at the very end and round off the taste profile

    Decent Mannochmore that offers exactly what you expect. Round, soft, sweet sherry malt that lacks nothing. Nevertheless, as a Mannochmore fan, I prefer to stay with the Bourbon Cask Mannochs. This one would go wonderfully with the cigar ????????????

  31. JABBER88 scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Surprise dby this one. Love the Mannoichmores produced by SMWS in bourbon casks. This was a shift to sherry for me and a real pleasant surprise. Not normally a fan of PX bombs but this is neither and almost reminds me of a oloroso finish.
    • Nose

      Sherry, christmas pudding.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Quiet dry. Not the sweet hit I was expecting. A gem actually.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Fruits, long finish really warm.

  32. man2392 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Tasted as part of a Carn Mor relaunch vtasting with
    Niel Hendriksz and the Southport Whisky Club.

    Nose: sherry, simple linctus cough syrup, stewed fruits, black treacle and Christmas pudding.
    Palate: syrupy with a hint of white pepper.
    Finish: stone fruits- peach and apricot, lychees in syrup, bit of a kick with a long finish. It tastes stronger than the ABV.

    With water

    Nose: musky, honeydew melon, mint imperials.
    Palate: Wrigleys juicy fruit chewing gum, pumpkin pie.
    Finish: concord grape.

    I normally find PX bottlings too sweet, not on this occasion. Might be because it's a combination of refill and first fill sherry casks.
